It’s no secret that I love urban fantasy more than any other genre out there, and I love it even more when urban fantasy flirts with horror just a little bit. I discovered the Edie Spence series entirely by accident, really enjoyed Nightshifted, the first book, and now I’m happy to report that the second book didn’t diminish my love for it in the least.

I think what people like most about Edie is that she’s just a regular woman, very non-heroic and plain. She works her night shifts at the hospita

You'll remember my excitement upon discovering Cassie Alexander and Nightshifted--her fabulous urban fantasy debut. I loved everything about it, from the killer cover to the hard-working, conflicted protagonist inside. When I realized the sequel was set to be published just a few months later I was, well, over the moon. Go on. Raise your hands. I know I'm not the only one who waits (with barely concealed ill grace) a year for each new installment in her favo

Despite oh so very deceiving synopsis, Moonshifted is not about choosing sides or men. Just like Nightshifted, it is a constant attempt of one lonely human with a big heart to survive among scary supernatural forces. That's it.

Nurse Edie doesn't have any superpowers, she is not particularly pretty, especially working night shifts (Edie, I know how you feel. I don't like the look of myself in the mirror after a week of night shifts too) and she doesn't have awesome powers of deduction. In ot

Moonshifted starts up pretty soon after Nightshifted leaves off, with Edie still recovering from a very nasty vampire attack. Her heart is still smarting after her lover, Ti, takes off to who knows where. So yeah, Edie’s not in a great place, but when she witnesses a hit and run right in front of her hospital, she has little time to think about herself when she’s trying to keep a man from bleeding out in the street.

The previous romance that grossed me out is a memory so I was able to read this book without cringing and actually ended up enjoying it more than the first book probably for the same reason. Edie does find some quick romantic entanglements but nothing long term so far. Big changes at the end of the book!!!

I really enjoyed this sequel to book one in the Edie Spence series, Nightshifted. It was a fun read and very engaging. I had trouble finding a good place to pause for the night while I was reading it. This is always a sign of a good book for me. :-)

A couple things I didn't like, though: Early in Edie's acquaintance with Lucas, I had wondered if he would be Edie's next "conquest" and (view spoiler)

In all honesty, I'd rate this book just a shade above crap, that is if you're considering it within the realm of a published novel with even a hint of literary merit. If, by chance, you're interested in sub-par porn with an needlessly and poorly executed elaborate plot, then this is the book for you!

Seriously, I'm disappointed. The first book wasn't exactly a mind-blowing pieces of literature either, Alexander is certainly not a Dickens, but it was fun and entertaining. The main character was a

K so I'm seriously loving Edie Spence. This book is totally different from the first one and if she's working towards so overall goal it's not apparent at this point. Oh, there are overall themes--weres hate vampires, vampires hate weres, shadows are assholes, etc., but there's not some great unification objective or something.

In fact, Edie has no super powers whatsoever. That's right, in a world of supernatural creatures, Edie Spence is not a supernatural. She's H-U-M-A-N. She's had some brushe
4.5 stars - Even better than the first!

{This review was originally published on Clear Eyes, Full Shelves.}

Cassie Alexander's debut novel, Nightshifted, was one of the more memorable and creative urban fantasies I've read in a long time. Needless to say, I was thrilled to get my hands on an early copy of Moonshifted, Nightshifted's fast-paced and riveting sequel.

Edie Spence, nurse on Y4, the secret floor of County Central Hospital where the supernatural are treated – the vampires, the werewolves and, in the past, even zombies and dragons. She doesn’t have nearly enough time, especially with the holidays coming up, and even less money hence her taking overtime during the holidays in the hope of more money to pad her rapidly disappearing paycheck.

That in itself would be exhausting, but that’s before the king of the werewolves gets run over in a hit and ru
I liked this one better than the last one. Edie seems to have smartened up a little bit, the brother was less annoying, the plot made more sense (ish). And there was less Grandfather, but it a WEIRD Way.

I liked the plot in this one much better than the plot in the first book. However, I find myself growing weary of the way the supernaturals constantly coerce and con Edie into doing things for them without giving her any explanations or choices in the matter. Then, when the shit hits the fan, they never seem to have her back and she's left to pick up the pieces all on her own.

Some of this is Edie's own fault. She has an abundance of do-gooder tendencies and she seems to be a bit of a doormat at

Where NIGHTSHIFTED, the first book in the Edie Spence series setup Edie’s crazy life and hospital job, MOONSHIFTED expanded on the danger and supernatural consequences of Edie’s actions as a nurse in the Y4 wing of her hospital. The first book focused heavily on vampires and, while they are featured in MOONSHIFTED I was excited to see my favorite supernatural creatures, werewolves, be the focus of this book. Their introduction and the plot surrounding t

Edie would do anything for those she cares about and that is how she ended up being a nurse in Y4. MOONSHIFTED picks up right where NIGHTSHIFTED ended and is full of action, fantastic characters and situations that will make you want to kick some bad guys were it counts.

When Edie and her coworker witness a hit and run outside of the hospital while on lunch break they jump in to help. Not only does the patient end up being someone that belongs on Y4 but his presence is the cause of most of the p

I was provided this Advance Reader Copy by the publisher.

Alexander begins this book with the same brisk action and unique perspective that made the first book, Nightshifted, so enjoyable. Alexander is a real-life nurse, and brings that realism to her urban fantasy featuring a nurse working on Y4, the top-secret paranormal creature wing of the hospital. There are a gazillion urban fantasies out there right now, and for me that touch of medical realism is what sets this series apart and makes it a

Moonshifted is the 2nd book in the Edie Spence series and I LOVED it!! It was such a fun read. The story became more indepth and the ending was unexpected. The ending did what an ending in a series should do....make the reader excited to continue the story. In this novel, we see Edie continuing her dangerous nursing job on y4 the top secret, supernatural floor of the hospital.

Moonshifted, sadly, is not as good as its predecessor. The plot of the first book was tight and suspenseful, whereas the storyline in Moonshifted is rather confusing and disjointed. The first installment also had a surprisingly sweet romance that provided some relief from the grimness of the rest of the book. Now that's gone, replaced by a mess of romantic entanglements that don't really do anything for the story. The writing is not as polished, and the whole final quarter of the book felt slapp ...more

I don’t know why but I just can’t get enough of this series. I should hate it because I get so caught up with each character Edie takes up with in each book, then the author takes that away! Why why why?! I want Lucas! He better come back!


Why did you do that with Syke’s character?! Now I don’t know how the rest of series could be good. I’m hoping she will appear again?

This outing had a lot of plot threads running through it.
Which to me, makes for better reading.
As long as the writer does not lose sight of them.

A lot happening in Edie's world.
Multiple points of interest, different groups. (Vampires/ weres and others.)

Some good story here.
Yet again main characters slutty side springs up.
Another in detail one night stand.
So after two books, multiple lovers or interests.

Some readers may enjoy that area.

I couldn't find the first book, so I started with this one. Luckily the author made it easy to catch up. It was amazing what Edie did to help her brother get off drugs. 'Course, he manages to get himself involved in something else.

It's amazing all the trouble she manages to find herself in. First trying to help her family, help the patients at the hospital, help her friends....I couldn't stop reading. I highly recommend!

Quick & Dirty: Enjoyable main character and world but the plot left me a little confused.

I like the nurse angle, and the fact she was a normal in the world of supers. But Edie just got more and more on my nerves.

The action was intense and the cyborg was cool and creepy.

The ending seems abrupt, like the author wanted to reboot the series for some reason.

I LOVE this urban fantasy series by Cassie Alexander! I stumbled upon her debut novel , Nightshifted,late last spring and I devoured it in one gulp. I've been counting down the months and then the days for the sequel to be released. *Kermit flail* It's here! It's here!

OK, do you read urban fantasy? Do you like stories with paranormal elements? What if the paranormal creatures aren't all sparkely or even very nice for that matter? Still game? Then come meet Edie and fall in love.

Nachdem mich der erste Band nicht nur unterhielt, sondern mir auch interessante Einblicke in den Arbeitsalltag einer etwas anderen Krankenschwester bot, konnte ich nicht anders, als auch den Nachfolger zu lesen. Dieser schloss an den Vorgänger an und konnte mich ebenfalls voll überzeugen.

Moonshifted is book 2 in the Edie Spence series. I read book one awhile back and enjoyed that the leading lady is a human nurse dealing with a bunch of paranormal beings. I wound up grabbing the audiobook of this installment from the library and I'm so glad I did. This time around we're dealing heavily with the werewolves and a bit about vampires. And man Edie Spence manages to always get in trouble.
